My dream to visit India was finally fulfilled when last month I went there with my family. I had always heard about its rich culture and traditions. So it was always in my to-do list to visit India. My wife was equally excited for this trip. We had planned to visit Golden Triangle tour. We were freezing the minute we arrived in Delhi as the weather was quite cold! But luckily, we had booked our stay at the Royal Plaza hotel – and a warm room awaited us! The services of this hotel were up to the mark. We experienced an overwhelming welcome from the staff team. The food we ate at the night was just so delicious and perfect.
The next morning we had decided to visit monuments and museums in Delhi. The hotel had provided us with a driver named Sunil. I am very thankful to this guy as he was our driver for the whole trip and had made sure that we take back a good experience from India. I remember that next day we first went to the India Gate and Rashtrapati Bhawan. I was in love with Lutyen’s architecture and designs! After that we went to Qutub Minar, followed by Red Fort. The Mughal designs had something very captivating about them, and we spent a long time taking pictures.
Our next destination was the pink city of India - Jaipur. We could understand that why this city has been named so because of the vibrant colours used in its architecture and traditions. We stayed in Golden Tulip Hotel which was one of the best five stars in Jaipur. It provided us all the facilities that we expected from it. We ate our dinner and enjoyed sipping drinks in the bar.
The next day, we went to Hawa Mahal and got to know that it has 953 windows! Wow! Then, we went to Nahargarh Fort which stands on the edge of the Aravali Hills. The next day we went to the popular City Palace. I must say that Rajasthan has rich history of royal culture and tradition. After enjoying this wonderful beauty of Jaipur, we left for Jodhpur. Sunil drove to Ratan Vilas, where we had decided to stay. It’s a really unique place as the ooms have maintained the old charm while providing all the modern facilities. We were very excited to see our favourite singer, Nick Jonas’s wedding palace, so first we went to Umaid Bhawan Palace! The royal elements of these palaces could not be put into words. They were so larger than life.
The same night we departed for Udaipur and reached Udai Kothi in five hours. The long drive inspired us to rest there for a while and afterwards, we went to the Vintage Car Museum. The next day we went for boating at Lake Pichola and also to the grand Sajjangarh Palace. We were very excited for our next day because we were going to Ranthambore National park to see tigers. Sunil was already giving us insights about the fun that was in store for us while exploring the Ranthambore Park. After a lot of anticipation, we finally reached Anurag Palace where we ate our lunch and slept for few hours. Then,we boarded on our jeep and went to the National Park. We captured a photo of a tigress with her two cubs! This jungle safari was a wonderful adventurous part of our journey. We came back to our hotel and packed our bags for next spot.
We reached Agra in six hours. The car stopped at Crystal Sarovar hotel. After reaching there we had spa and a refreshing tea. After we settled down, we went to see the beautiful and magnificent Taj Mahal in the evening. This amazing trip had come to an end and had given us innumerable memories. We came to Delhi and boarded our flight for USA with a heavy heart!
